BBC finds nine missing 'Doctor Who' episodes in Nigeria (2013)

[edit]

Doctor Who fans rejoice — the BBC says it has recovered nine episodes of the sci-fi series that were feared lost in space and time. The broadcaster says the missing episodes, and two others, were found in the storeroom of a television relay station in Nigeria. Doctor Who was first broadcast in 1963. Some early episodes were lost because the broadcaster wiped the tapes clean for reuse. The recovered episodes date from 1967 and 1968 and feature Patrick Troughton, the second actor to play the show’s time-travelling hero. They comprise most of two six-part stories: "The Web of Fear" and The Enemy of the World. They will be offered for sale on iTunes, and later on DVD. Almost 100 episodes of the series are still missing.
